The team at Marvel Studios has its hands in nearly ever aspect of filmmaking from feature films to live-action and animated fare produced specifically for Disney+. I Am Groot, the next project being released by the House of Ideas, is its shortest one yet with just five shorts totaling 20 minutes or so. Select members of the media got to watch the shorts on Monday a few weeks ahead of release and it looks like people are loving it.
ComicBook.com's very own Jim Viscardi applauded the character work of the mischievous titular character while others applauded the show's photorealistic animation and lighthearted tone. Keep scrolling to see what everyone is saying.
I just watched all episodes of #IAmGroot and holy moly did @kirstenlepore nail it. Such cute moments with some fun reveals about Groot we always wondered but didn't know.

Sassy and Sweet
'I Am Groot' is the perfect vehicle for Baby Groot to shine. Proving once again what we love about him: he brings a little chaos everywhere he goes. Short, sassy, and sweet: your whole family will love this series- especially #4. On Disney+ August 10 #IAmGroot #disneyplus pic.twitter.com/EtPTJ6mu6q— PattyCakeToast (@noguiltlife) July 26, 2022
#IAmGroot? More like "cute," because Disney+'s Groot shorts are delightful little snippets featuring everyone's favorite mono-phrased tree alien. The comedy is surprisingly dark, though still family friendly, and often feels like lost bits from the Guardians movies. Two Groots up pic.twitter.com/JbIZYAPlr3— Alex Zalben (@azalben) July 26, 2022
So Much Fun
Just watched #IAmGroot and I can already tell my niece is going to watch this thing no less than 200 times.
So much fun. So fun to look at. And who doesn't love Baby Groot?
